Prime Rib Recipe- How to Cook a Prime Rib Roast
Prime Rib Recipe
Let’s face it, prime rib is expensive. That can make it a bit daunting if you’re a novice. Even at my house, because of the cost, I approach this cut with a bit of respect, although it really is pretty simple. Especially if you get a great cut, like the ones my friends at Certified Angus Beef were kind enough to give me. If you aren’t sure how to choose a great prime rib roast, check out the video I have posted at the end of the this article.
I love to do prime rib for Christmas, and one of the main reasons why is because it’s so simple. There’s plenty enough going on Christmas Day – I don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen, I want to play with my kids! But I also want Christmas Dinner to be pretty spectacular, so I turn to the prime rib. Once the prep is done it takes care of itself, as long as you remember to LET IT REST. I also love how the scraps and bones can be used to create some other incredible dishes, like au jus and French Onion Soup.
Normally prime rib is a dish reserved for restaurants, and it’s either horribly expensive, or it’s of such awful quality that it’s nearly inedible. There’s no reason for that. While the cut itself can be costly, it’s no where near as much as ordering it in a high end steak house, especially for up to 8 people.
